Crawfords Commentary

In the third installment of Crawford's Commentary this spring, staff writer Ken Crawford catches up with two of the bigger headliners from Saturday's first Spring Ball scrimmage. Sophomore wide receiver Marvin Jones, who is competing for some serious minutes this year, got the day started with a long touchdown down the left sideline.
